I like love I don't like it's pain

I like a brand new notebook and a sharp pencil and how it flows across the pages.
I don't like how I can't find a single word to explain how I feel
I like misty mornings with warm coffee and how the first sip hits the back of my throat.
I don't like how your mug is still on its hanger, dusty and empty like My heart.
I like the sound of rain and its earthy smell,how each drop finds its own path down the window pane

I LIKE AND I DON'T LIKE

I like a person with a nice smile.
I hate people who are hostile.

I like it when people tell the truth.
I hate it when people are uncouth.

I like people who look out for the underdog.
I hate people with rehearsed dialogue.

I like all the beautiful ladies.
I hate the God Hades.

I like the word from the wise,
I hate dirty little lies.

I like all walks of life.
I hate my ex-wife.

I like all animals.
I hate all scandals.

Forté

Forté

Yesterday rolled slowly,
Like the tired legs of a pregnant mother,
Pushing on, just enough to hold survival
It's strength to go on, languishing persevere
Forté clings-clutches willing's mind
To see tomorrow's bogus in view,
Brings peaceful assurance
Then with a sigh from beneath,
'All will be fine'... urging on consciousness
Steps out to birth future's great.

@sheddie

I am fearless
Destined for greatness
Shining like the stars above
Accompanied by a dove

I am a beauty
With a kind heart and a duty
To teach the world and tell my stories
To brighten up faces
From a mile
With a smile

He is my handsome man
My number one fan
Who followed me
With a purpose to see
What a wonderful world it'd be
With laughter, joy and amazing beats

We are a family
One-stop-junction for comedy
In the midst of quarrels and fights
We make our worries light

The Waking Bird

Good morning, the waking bird
How was your night?
It has become every day
You knock my window plane;
I’m sorry for bothering you to keep me sane

You come and go with a note of waking
When am still snoring
The rising sun attests to your courage
Showing you in my cracked window plane
I gently croon ‘Two Little Black Birds’

I hear the flap of your feathers
When I chorus the poem
Come and take the helm

You Again!

You Again!

the enemy sits in wait
it hides from detection.
old as rocks and water,
it plots...
but it is sloppy
in its disguise.
for a nano second
I see a flash
a flicker
a flare...
of its throat
the sparkly vision comes
and shards of glass
penetrate
my poor
defenseless eyes
then comes
the black holes
hanging in the air.
voices strike blows
can't take
much more
than a
whisper...

Mamas Waiting Hopefully

BUT THE DOC
Says
HE Wonders
HOW I AM Holding
TO This Earth
Since Long
SO Long

HOW Much More
HE CAN'T Guess
BUT Does Profess
Some DAY
IF NOT Today
I Shall
AS I Must
GO Away

LET THE DAY Come
ONE DAY
Some DAY
ANY DAY
When

HE CAN'T Play Magic
HE'S A DOC Only

TONIGHT

TONIGHT

The vibes of Nile's night
the twerking of twilight
the pleas of pleasure
the cold caresses of the wind
the mounting smile of the moon
bedazzle me, tonight

Take me to the journey of pleasure
let me be the horse of your ride
the soft mattress of your comfort
the warmth hands of your massage
bewitch me, tonight

Snow (Neopoem Of The Week Contest May 22 to May 28)

How do I stay sane when seeing is only pain?
Brain tries to filter but to no avail
I hold my head in my hands with eyes closed
I search for clarity but only fail

Body trembles to the penetrating abuse
Ears ring to the vibrating bass
Tears stream down my fatigued face

'Unwanted glares; sunburst haloes
Awkward colours where no rainbow follows
Double vision; obscure shapes
Twisting & turning, I fall; no escape'

HAPPINESS IS

HAPPINESS IS
Coffee in the morning.
Heeding the warning.

HAPPINESS IS
The kids next door.
Wiping out an old Score.

HAPPINESS IS
Children when they Laugh.
Looking at your better Half.

HAPPINESS IS
Ice cold coke Cola.
A date with a girl named Lola.

HAPPINESS IS
A family that drives you Crazy.
A co-worker that isn't Lazy.

HAPPINESS IS
Taking care of your Pet.
Finding your favorite Cassette.
